In 2018, Janelle Monáe released an emotion picture to accompany her album “Dirty Computer”. The short film was analyzed to be commentary about being a queer black woman in America using concepts of afrofuturism. There are reoccurring themes regarding the contrasting technology in society and freedom/human emotion, which relates back to a previous video of Ruha Benjamin watched for this course. Dirty Computer is a very empowering work of art and I encourage everyone to watch it!
